Choose either one, and just see if everything loads up fine.

The computer is dual booting with 2 versions of windows.

Now, one way is do a repair of windows and just rewrite the os files so you can run operating system, and keep your data.

The other way, if you have no copy of windows 2000, you can open your boot.ini file in C:\ and delete the extra line from the boot menu. This will tell windows that 2 versions of windows is not installed. But you must unhide protected os file.This is reccomended only for advanced users, So if you dont know how to unhide protected os files its probvably not even a good idea to try this fix.

Best of luck to ya.
